That was definitely worth a listen, if only to know what we're up against.

Interviewee, Robert Plomin, seems even more unabashedly besotted with himself and his ideas than the average academic. But, if he didn't publish something like that then someone else would have.

How can the admittedly small number of identical twin studies he has performed amount to a statistically significant argument?

--> It's interesting that zero mention was made of Martin Seligman's research into the impact optimism has on people's lives--that, regardless of talent, education, and other obvious factors, the single biggest ingredient predicting a person's 'success' in life (the bourgeois definition of success) was their attitude, namely their degree of optimism.

I have a HUGE problem with the fact that the Plomin interview only briefly mentioned the effects of abuse on the trajectory of children's lives.

Abuse is of far greater concern than genetic probability, but it's much easier to masturbate over numbers than to actually succeed in addressing a complex and growing social problem.
